Understanding the NDIS
The NDIS provides people with a disability greater choice and control to achieve their goals and aspirations.
The NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and it is a new way for people with disabilities to get funding to pay for the supports they need.
The NDIS provides people with disability, their families and carers, with:
- More choice around the supports received.
- Increased control and flexibility around how and when those supports are provided.
- A lifetime approach to the delivery of disability support services, and a support plan that changes to reflect changes in personal circumstances over time.
- Greater opportunity for early intervention (support provided before the point of crisis, to reduce the impact of disability)

NDIA have introduced the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) in the price guide for 2019 – 20.
From 1st July 2019, providers of attendant care and community centre-based activities can charge a higher support price limit. This is through the TTP.
These TTP prices are charged to a range of support services, including allied health, daily personal activities, group and center-based activities, high intensity daily personal activities, participation in community, social and civic activities, and more.
